Listen: Stream Burials Rival Dealer EP
Dec 11, 2013 9:35am | Chart Attack
Finally, the reason any judicious website pushed back their year-end lists has arrived: The Rival Dealer EP from Burial, out December 16th on Hyperdub, is out below. Will anyone care if we say it's exclusive to Chart Attack, even if it's not? Whatever. Stream all three tracks below EXCLUSIVELY.
Get the popcorn ready for Rival Dealer, a song with a title that suggests a movie, specifically one of those hyperkinetic DnB thrillers with lots misplaced drugs and prostitutes that need saving (there was a lot of that in the '90s). I'm listening to the rest of them now and they're all really good. I just want to enjoy them, ok? Holy shit this a good part. It's Toto meet trap. You'll know what I mean when you get there.
Buy the release here via Hyperdub.

Eleanor Friedberger My Own World Video
Dec 11, 2013 9:33am | StereoGum
The Fiery Furnaces’ Eleanor Friedberger gave us the supremely likable solo album Personal Record earlier this year, and she’s now made four videos with the reliably funny director Scott Jacobson. The latest of those is for the Personal Record song “My Own World,” and it stars indie actress Kate Lyn Sheil as a young woman who deals with some serious bullshit. Friedberger plays one of the people giving her bullshit. Watch it below.

The Last of The Romantics: Suede Live in Amsterdam
Dec 11, 2013 9:32am | Drowned In Sound
Never meet your heroes they say. Theyll only let you down. Well, bollocks to that. Ive waited nigh on twenty years for this, a night with Brett and the boys. For a solid two month period back in 1994, Dog Man Star punctured my dreary suburban existence. Behind the carpeted halls and net curtains, the tended front gardens and rows of neatly parked Rovers, Suede opened a window into another world, a late-night universe where desire and hedonism ran free. They turned bright city lights from a symbol of opportunity to a shining beacon of excess, injecting much-needed excitement into teenage ennui. Of all the bands that helped usher in Britpop, you wouldnt have bet on Suede enjoying a cultural renaissance in 2013, but here they are. This feels like the consummation of a life long love, a chance to revel in a moment where the past and future meet in perfect, joyous symmetry.
Not many would choose the sombre melancholy of Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto No. 2 as walk-on music, but then Suede were never like other bands. Tragedy and misfortune stalked the Russian, illness, death and revolution taunting the last great Romantic of the Golden Age of classical composition to his grave. Im sure Anderson sympathises; while penury and fate transpired to keep the pianist from his first love writing the enigmatic singer has his own tales of woe, the drugs, breakups and volatile passion that underpinned their shattering early singles slowly pushing the fiercely intelligent and ...
Fiona Apple, Beck, and Phosphorescent cover love songs for Valentines Day album
Dec 11, 2013 9:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
It may still be another two weeks until Christmas, but it’s already time to start planning for Valentine’s Day (and then next week you’ll have to start mulling over your options for Flag Day). On February 4th, Hear Music/Concord Music and Starbucks will release Sweethearts 2014, their fifth compilation of romantic cover songs. This year’s collection features 13 tracks firmly split between brand new covers and selections that have been in the artist’s setlist for some time.
In the former category, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James tackles Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low”, Vampire Weekend re-imagine opera singer Andrea Bocelli’s “Con Te Partirò”, Fiona Apple and her sister Maude Maggart duet on The Third Man’s “I’m In The Middle of a Riddle”, and The Head and the Heart cover Harry Nilsson’s “Don’t Forget Me”. In the latter, versions of covers of John Lennon’s “Love” by Beck, Bob Dylan’s “Tomorrow Is A Long Time” by Phosphorescent, and Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” by Ben Harper are readily available online.
The physical version of the album will be sold only at Starbucks. A digital copy will be available through Concord Music Group.
For a (chocolaty) taste of the album, listen to James’ cover of “Turn Your Lights Down Low”, whic...
The Front Bottoms list their top 10 LPs of 2013, playing BV holiday party this month (and other shows)
Dec 11, 2013 9:29am | Brooklyn Vegan
intro by Andrew Sacher
The Front Bottoms at Mercury Lounge in 2011 (more by
Chris La Putt)
The Front Bottoms' Talon of the Hawk (out now on Bar/None) was one of the more fun records of the year, mixing folk punk and indie pop in a way that was pretty easy to get stuck in your head. We asked them for their top albums of 2013, and drummer Mat Uychich sent a list that pretty much sounds like what you'd imagine they listen to. It also includes both 2013 albums by Kevin Devine (whose band Bad Books the Front Bottoms opened for in July) and the newest from Tiny Moving Parts (who open the Front Bottoms' upcoming show at Shea). You can check out the full list below.
That Front Bottoms/Tiny Moving Parts show at Shea (12/28), which Chris Gethard hosts, is one of our two BV holiday parties this month. The Shea show is unfortunately sold out.
The Front Bottoms also have other upcoming dates, including another sold-out NYC show a day earlier at Bowery Ballroom (12/27), and a tour with You Blew It! that hits Long Island on January 30 at 89 North (tickets).
They've also added some new stuff to their webstore, including a seasonally appropriate knit scarf.
All of their dates are listed, along with a video and the top 10 list, below...

Machinedrum @ MHOW - 12/7/13 (via Machinedrum
Machinedrum (aka Travis Stewart) released his impressive new album Vapor City earlier this year and has been celebrating it with some live, full band shows including the one in NYC last Saturday (12/7) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The show was opened by Om Unit and Nick Hook, as well as an unannounced set from Machinedrum's duo with Braille, Sepalcure. No video of the MHOW show, but you can watch a video splicing together clips of some of his other live sets, below.
Meanwhile, Sepalcure will headline their next NYC show on January 10 at Cameo with Alex Burkat and Aquarian. Tickets for that show are on sale now. It's their only announced date at the moment.

My favorite album of 2011 was Past Life Martyred Saints, the gutwrenching and crazy-intense solo debut from the former Gowns leader EMA, and it wasn’t even close. After touring behind the album, Erika M. Anderson has been quiet for a while, but she’s now announced that this spring, she’ll release that album’s follow-up, which has the promising-as-hell title The Future’s Void. Even better, she’s shared first single “Satellites,” which applies the whirling fervor of her last album to a goth-industrial sensibility. It sounds amazing. Listen below. Seriously. It’s the fucking best.
Kim Shattuck says she was fired by Pixies manager a day after their last show

Earlier this month, bassist Kim Shattuck unexpectedly announced
her departure from Pixies
Shattuck said she was “shocked” by the band’s decision, as she had previously agreed to tour with them in 2014. “Everything had gone well, the reviews were all good and the fans were super-nice about everything. They were like, ‘We love you, New Kim!’ We said goodbye at the airport and the following morning the manager called me and said: ‘The band has made the decision to go with another bass player.’”
Asked to speculate on why she was fired, Shattuck replied: “I get the feeling they’re more introverted people than I am. Nobody really talked about deep issues, at least out loud. There was a show at the Mayan in Los Angeles where I got overly enthusiastic and jumped into the crowd, and I know they weren’t thrilled about that. When I got offstage the manager told me not to do that again. I said, ‘Really, for my own safety?’ And he said, ‘No, because the Pixies don’t do that.’
She concluded: “I would have preferred it if they told me face to face as a group, but...
Giorgio Moroder Tonys Theme (Scarface 30th Anniversary Remix)
Dec 11, 2013 8:57am | StereoGum
In some secluded cabin somewhere, a curious type has found an old book of incantations and somehow read aloud the one spell that would reawaken a sleeping giant. That, at least, is the best explanation I can imagine for the reemergence of Giorgio Moroder, the Italo-disco genius who recently started DJing again and who has returned to dance-music production, doing things like telling his life story on a Daft Punk song and remixing HAIM. Back in his original run, when he wasn’t making amazing earthshaking anthems with Donna Summer and others, Moroder was a film-music composer and an important figure in the early-’80s moment when synths brilliantly replaced orchestra’s on movie soundtracks. Moroder did the music for Brian De Palma’s 1983 film Scarface, every rapper’s favorite movie. And now he’s remixed his own track “Tony’s Theme” to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the movie, turning it into a fired-up blog-house thing with lots of samples of Al Pacino yelling. Hear it below.
Jim Hall, RIP

Jim Hall was a guitar god, but not in the sense that he could blaze through a zillion notes a minute. He was worshipped by guitarists around the world, but you'd never know it from talking to him.Rest in peace, Jim. You'll be missed.
